After the disastrous this second Anglo-Burmese War, the shrunken Burmese kingdom had few resources to build a new ostentatious palace. The former royal palace of Amarapura was dismantled and moved by elephants to the new location at the foot of Mandalay Hill. The construction of the palace compound was officially completed in May 1859. The British invaded and ransacked the palace and burned down the royal library. The royal regalia of Burma were removed as military booty and displayed in the South Kensington Museum in London. In 1964 they were returned to Burma as a gesture of goodwill. The British renamed the palace compound Fort Dufferin and used it to billet troops. During World War II, the palace citadel was turned into a supply depot by the Japanese and was burnt to the ground by Allied bombing.

Since 2017/18 Lower Se San 2 Dam: The Lower Se San 2 Dam, a hydroelectric dam under development on the Se San River in Stung Treng Province in northeastern Cambodia. The Se San River is a major tributary of the Mekong River. The dam site is located 25 kilometres east of the provincial capital, also named Stung Treng. The first turbine began producing electricity in November 2017, officially opened on 18 December 2018 - Impact of Lower Se San 2 Dam, as according to the environmental impact assessment, the dam's reservoir is expected to inundate numerous villages upstream from the dam, which will force the relocation of many thousands of villagers, many of whom have lived on or near the banks of the Se San River for generations. Both upstream and downstream, the effects of the dam are expected to drastically reduce the fishery resources on which many thousands more villagers depend for food and income. The effects will likely be felt as far away as the Tonlé Sap Lake - 10 August 2021 'Underwater' - Human Rights Impacts of a China Belt and Road Project in Cambodia
